Even the most devout right-winger can see that putting Don King on the Republican campaign trail has no chance of swaying the black vote, let alone any vote. King is simply the clown of the boxing world, and nothing he says should be taken seriously.
Lonnie Ball, South Holland, Ill.
Since when did Reilly become the Michael Moore of sportswriters? Sports and politics go together like church and state. If I want to read about the 2004 presidential race I'll run out and pick up a copy of The New York Times or The Washington Post.

Rick, please stick to subjects about which you actually know something, like bashing Barry Bonds.
Why would George W. Bush have a convicted felon, who could not legally cast a vote in Florida in the November election, stumping for him in Miami and other places? The "promoter of the black voter," indeed.

Spare the A-Rod?
Tom Verducci may assert Alex Rodriguez was an innocent victim, or something close to one, in the July 26 Boston basebrawl, but I can't agree (Inside Baseball, Aug. 9). Verducci must not have seen the four-letter words flowing from A-Rod's mouth or the bring-it-on gesture he made toward Jason Varitek. Hats off to the de facto Red Sox captain for sticking up for his pitcher. Surely his counterpart, Yankees captain Derek Jeter, would have been classy enough to simply take his base, and the entire situation would have been avoided.
